What Parents Should Know About Flu and COVID-19

Flu vs. COVID-19 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released guidance on the differences between the flu and COVID-19. “While COVID-19 and flu viruses are thought to spread in similar ways, COVID-19 is more contagious among certain populations and age groups than flu,” the organization states. For flu, that means getting the flu shot. So pediatricians will likely need to test for both [diseases] even in those who have had the flu shot,” Beers said. The website also says that children who have COVID-19 who were previously not vaccinated for the flu can still get a flu shot once COVID-19 symptoms go away.
